Using the Powershell Module method of installation. Issue with external hosts accessing it

Product: PowerShell Universal
Version: 1.5.14

Spent an hour troubleshooting as to why I was unable to access Powershell Universal from another host. Installed a fresh Windows 10 Pro VM, Powershell 7.1 + Windows Terminal to be the host of PSU.

I couldn’t for the life of me work out why I was unable to access the dashboards from another pc on the network.

  1. Install-Module Universal
  2. Import-Module Universal
  3. install-PSUServer -latestversion -AddToPath
  4. Start-PSUServer -Port 5000 # Service loads fine on the host. Unable to access from another host.

I disabled the firewall rules and was checking the logs file. The web server was seeing the request and returning a 200. Yet the remote client got ERR Connection Refused.

I then tried `Start-PSUServer -Port 5000 -ListenAddress “” # Server fails to start.

My next attempt was to remove the folders from c:\ProgramData and install the Win MSI installer. That works! :slight_smile:
